One of my colleagues and I were just discussing whether the NY Times will ever go out of business.

A day without "The Times" crossword is a day without sunshine.

To the fountain of perpetual mirth, let it roll for all its worth. And all the children boogie.

ahdn_paul_06 My library has microform reels of the NY Times going way back. We know we will keep those reels, but we were trying to decide if we need to keep the huge index books for them. For now, you can use the NY Times website to locate articles (ie an online index). As long as the company remains in business and maintains some type of easily available index to the paper, we don't need the books. But, if the company goes under, we would lose the index. These are the questions librarians in the digital age ponder.

Can you get an electronic copy of their index and host one yourself?

Hack their system and store everything they have on your own back-up. Legal and moral issues aside there will be no worries about losing the information. apple01

That would take up a lot less space than those big red books. I suppose the NY Times would play nice and give the world the index in some electronic format if they were going to go out of business. Then there's the issue of data migration when new storage formats are invented, but that can be handled okay. Yeah, I guess we will ditch those books.

I meant to post this yesterday when I learned it, but I learned that on the 'Best Of Dark Horse' compilation, they cut bits out of 'Love Comes To Everyone' and 'Here Comes The Moon'-- part of the outro for the former, a verse in the latter.

'Love Comes To Everyone' is the single edit from 1979. Paul did the same with a few tracks on 'Wingspan' (Junior's Farm', 'Waterfalls', 'With A Little Luck'). I have no idea why 'Here Comes The Moon' was shortened tho as its not like the album was struggling to fit on the cd - they probably thought it went on too long.

I just randomly decided to listen to 'Wonderful Tonight' and now I realise that that song I had known for ever and that comes on the radio sometimes if you're lucky was 'Wonderful Tonight' and

I learnt that if you have a very dirty cooking tray add a good amount of soap powder (the stuff you use for washing clothes) to the tray, fill with hot water and leave for a good few hours. Come back, rinse out and almost all of the dirt will be gone. My tray is almost spotless. apple01

When I'm Sixty-Four , because half The Beatles didn't reach that age... okay, this is getting depressing. 

I NEVER REALISED THAT BEFORE

Today I learned it might not be the smartest idea to jump in a trampoline with a 6 year old filled with leaves. Just, don't....

*sighs very loudly out of exhaust*

*rips leaves out of hair*

Why was a 6 year old filled with leaves?
